I (finally) finished my Marcelle Medallion quilt top! It seemed like a long haul to get those cross blocks on for the outer border, but (non-quilting) life gets busy sometimes.
I love this view of the borders. I intentionally used light fabrics for the brick border, hoping it would contrast with the dark flying geese, but now I think it blends too much with the floral fabric border and is too Mushy. Oh, well, live and learn.
I did the brick border differently from the pattern. The instructions to make the brick border like mine are posted here.
I do love how the outer border looks, making the “background” of the crosses half light and half dark.
Guess what? In celebration of finishing this top, I am hosting another Sunday Funday giveaway with Julie at 627 Handworks.
Leave a comment on this post and I will draw one name to win the Love Quilting magazine that contains the pattern for the Marcelle Medallion and other fun patterns in addition to three cheerful fat quarters (I love that bright green with the pink, don’t you?)
if you want an idea for your comment, I would love to know if you are making or plan to make a medallion quilt (if you have a blog, I will come visit). Now, I usually respond to all comments, but due to high volume (thanks, Julie!), I will not be able to respond to all.
